Slavery is alive and kicking now, possibly just as common place, simply it is not just folks from Africa, it is sweat shops in India with little children working 16 hours a day, it is whores shipped by trickery from parts of Eastern Europe to Western Europe including Britain, to be used and abused, it is people shipped by Roma from Poland I think it was to do forced labour with an endless dept platform to keep them in servitude indefinitely.

There was a rash of Pakistani men grooming White and Black girls in England to turn them out on the streets, Many have recently been jailed.

All colours all races NOW.

Is that what I am trying to get across here? You must be having your period! The Akran people are in Surinam and Jamaica when they were taken as slaves to the indies. Now hundreds of years later, a modern member from the African tribe can still communicate with him.  Racial preservation, keeping the bloodline pure is something wonderful. It preserves culture!

90% of the island people  originated from Ghana . I can see them everyday in TO.
JA   more 'multi   tribal
....
Just shooting.....

In the Methodist church : Like teachers Revs would come from England , spend 2-4 years and some are then transferred to other islands.
I have noticed in today's Caribbean  , Revs from Ghana has filled that void. On and off in the last 10 years I have met 3 different ones at the 'village' church.

The Akran is not one tribe. There are  different peoples from the gold coast. The first slaves to inhabit the Caribbean were primarily criminals who were captured and sold.  Later in the 1700s, the demand for more slaves to work in the sugar industry caused the raid on many African villages. The Akran people are the Coromantees-- the Maroons of Jamaica. They were very hard for the Europeans to handle and instigated all of the rebellions.
